Erasmus + is the new EU programme for Education, Training, Youth, and Sport for 2014-2020.
The seven year-programme will have a budget of €14.7 billion. It combines seven EU education, training and youth programmes and for the first time provides support to sport.
The programme is structured in three key actions:
- Key Action 1: Mobility of individuals (including Joint Master Degrees and a Master student loan guarantee)
- Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices (including strategic partnerships, knowledge alliances, sector skills alliances and capacity building in the field of youth)
- Key Action 3: Support for policy reforms
In addition, sports and Jean Monnet Activities are also supported.
Further information can be found on the website of the European Commission.
